City-ESS HQ-NatCen survey methodology seminar series


In this seminar we will explore the implementation of mobile app data collection for the Understanding Society Innovation Panel.

Date: Thursday 28 November, 5:45pm - 7:15pm.

Location: ELG03, Drysdale Building, City, University of London, EC1V 0HB

Speaker: Professor Annette Jäckle, Institute for Social and Economic Research

This event is free to attend, please book a place using the below link.

This seminar will report findings on the effects of different protocols for implementing mobile app-based data collection, from two studies that used mobile apps to collect data about spending for their Innovation Panel. The studies included experiments with respondent incentives, the mode with which respondents were invited to download and use the app, and personalized respondent feedback, as well as a browser-based alternative offered to those who did not use the app.

Professor Annette Jäckle is a Professor of Survey Methodology at the Institute for Social and Economic Research at the University of Essex and Associate Director of Innovations for the Understanding Society household panel survey.
